Fukushima's Mountain of Flowers

An enchanting spring outing

Spring in Japan is synonymous with cherry blossoms, but can you imagine a mountain full of different types of cherry blossoms and many other kinds of flowers? Well, such a place does indeed exist!

Mt. Hanamiyama is just a bus ride away from the Fukushima Station. The area was once used for cotton cultivation and in the off season, the farmers planted flowers for sale. Soon enough the flower industry grew while cotton dwindled. The farmers have opened up their lands so everyone can appreciate the magnificence of the flowers here.

I highly recommend a visit here for hanami (flower viewing) enthusiasts.
